Damn!

Because you know after I sent my resume to these people in April I haven't been able to sleep a full night without knowing whether I got the job or not.

Nice to see they are so timely. I wonder if the secretary they did hire was responsible for the letters?

Maybe they need a new office manager. You know, to keep them on top of stuff so correspondence gets dealt with in a timely manner... Or maybe not.

I sent a manuscript in to a small publishing company once. They sent a rejection letter, but didn't return the manuscript. Then, I got another letter from them for the same manuscript. I sent them a letter thanking them for rejecting my manuscript, but telling them that I got the message the first time, and that maybe my manuscript wasn't what they were looking for, but I didn't think it was bad enough to warrant TWO rejection letters. The editor called to apologize. Didn't publish my work, though. Damn!

Thank God you can rest easily again. I know how that must have been nagging at you...

I had that happen to me when I first moved to the ATL. But, I got a phone call--and I told them I had accepted another job. THEN, I got a "you suck, we don't want to hire you" letter from the people. Hello! I rejected them.

I was going to respond to this post but maybe I should wait 6 months...;)

I bet sgeddes is right--they made the new person write all the letters!

The sad thing is, well, they really may not have actually filled the position until now. Before I dabbled in HR I didn't think such inanities were possible...

Do you think they EVER keep you in mind should another position open up? I think you should send a letter back rejecting their rejection. "Sorry, but I am unable to accept your letter. With the hire of the woman who got the job you have filled a position that should be mine. I will expect her letter of resignation and your phone call. Thanks."

See where that gets you. :)

How badly did the y need staff? Not very, judging by the speed of their rejection letter. Wow. Rude....

Uh! Yeah! I am glad that you can sleep at night now. Were they waiting for you to ask them about the job? Is that the way they work and when you don't ask in six months time they send you a letter? I think that there should be some kind of standard for HR, like when they say they will inform you one way or the other then they should do it. And if they don't you should be able to show up for work and get paid, that would get some of those off teir duffs. Love, Mom

HA! Sorry, I just spit out my coke. Amazing, but so very thoughtful of them to remember you.

Umm, the letter didn't come from some public sector agency, did it? Very scary indeed.

That is hilarious!! Not that you didn't get the job of course... just what idiots they are to send you the letter some five months later!!

I interviewed for a job once, and didn't hear anything for 2 months. Then they called with an offer and wanted an answer right away. As in, within 2 days. I told them I needed a week. Just because they weren't in a hurry and then suddenly were, doesn't mean that I had to be suddenly on their schedule.

For another company, they kept my resume for 3 years, then did a web search and found me under a different last name and different email. I couldn't believe they actually kept my resume "on file"!

OMFG that is so funny!

I once came home from a job interview to a rejection letter from the same company I was interviewing at! Why did they even bother interviewing me?
